Easter Dinner with extended family- mine field!
Sunday, April 04, 2010
My sister and brother in-law are gourmet cooks, and they love to entertain. They are the glue that holds the families together. Perfect hosts, perfect house, perfect food. I was concerned about dinner:
smoked pork ribs / 6 difference barbecue sauces
cornbread honey butter
fingerling roast potatoes
zucchini parmesan salad
cherry tomato / mozzerella cheese salad
giant perfect strawberries
wine / beer
chocolate sponge cake rolled filled with mousse
I plan on 3-4 oz of pork, no sauce, focused on the salads, couple of bites of cornbread.
But that CAKE! Oh my-- I split a piece with my husband.
I would call the dinner a success for m.e, although my downfall was the cake and I am over my calorie intake for today. But--the old Chops would have easily eaten double.
